Match Preview | Armando Dobra

Latest U's recruit excited for new challenge

3 September 2021

Armando Dobra was the deadline day signing for Colchester United, putting pen-to-paper on a one year loan deal with the U's from Suffolk neighbours, Ipswich Town.

The exciting forward player shone in the pre-season friendly between the U's and the Tractor Boys and will now represent Colchester United throughout the 2021/22 campaign. 

At only twenty years old, Dobra has already seen plenty of action, turning out thirty times for Ipswich Town, as well as gaining international experience with Albania's youth teams. 

And after signing for the U's, Dobra is keen to show what he can do, so that he can return to Suffolk a better player.

"When I heard that Colchester United were interested, I was buzzing so I told my agent to get it done. There's a lot of familiar faces here that I know from Ipswich and it's good to have people around that you know. 

"I knew it was a good place to come, spoke to the boys and they just gave me postive things about the club and I'm happy to be here. 

"I had an honest chat with the Ipswich manager, and we came to the decision that a loan move was best. This is an important part in my career where I need to be playing. This is a very good opportunity for me. 

"I can play in the number 10 role, but I can also play on the left. I'm here to fight for my place. I didn't come here to fight for mid table, I came here to get promoted with the team. I think we have got a strong squad and hopefully we can do it this season."
